Follow Friday - 197 Is a Prime Number

It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the Featured Blogger of the week - The Macabre Masquerade.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: Do you use the #FF on twitter on Fridays? If you do, are you afraid you’ll forget someone and they’ll be sad?

I don't use the FF hashtag very often, partially because I don't really think it is all that valuable and partially because the set of followers that I have almost certainly know of pretty much everyone I follow of any note. I usually find new people to follow when someone else retweets something they said that was interesting, or engages them in an intriguing conversation that I see part of. I have pretty much never started following someone because someone used the FF hashtag to recommend them. Since I don't really follow people as a result of the use of the FF hashtag, I more or less assume that most other people don't, and don't bother to use it as a result.

One notable exception: I use the FollowFriday hashtag when I tweet the link to my posts participating in this specific meme.

  1. I have never heard of the #FF tag on Twitter, and not real sure even what it is LOL Still new to all this blogging stuff.

    My FF

    Followed you via GFC

    1. @Teresa Noel: It is pretty much the same as the FF tag used in the hop. The #FF" is short for "#FollowFriday", and is used to recommend twitters users to one's own twitter followers.
